The Associated Press, BBC, Rolling Stone, the Washington Post, and a host of other media outlets ran with a Nov. 19 story first reported by Yahoo News national correspondent and Business Insider senior political correspondent Hunter Walker. The reporter wanted to know if a Trump administration would favor “special identification” for American Muslims as part of a terror-monitoring program.
We’re going to have to – we’re going to have to look at a lot of things very closely,” Trump said. “We’re going to have to look at the mosques. We’re going to have to look very, very carefully.”
Media then took Trump’s decision to ignore allusions to Nazi Germany as de facto support for tyrannical policies.
On his radio show on Friday Rush Limbaugh told his audience:
“Everybody in the Drive-By Media is running with this because they think they’ve got Trump again. They’re salivating out there, folks, they are hoping, they’ve got their fingers crossed, they’ve doubled down, they’re putting this story everywhere: Trump sexist, Trump bigoted, Trump anti-Muslim, wants a database; wants to go to their mosques to sign ‘em up; wants to have them carry around symbols on their clothes to tell everybody who they are. And he never said it,” Limbaugh told his audience.
“Should there be databases that track Muslims in this country,” an NBC News reporter asked the businessman at an Iowa campaign stop Thursday night.
“There should be a lot of systems beyond databases. We should have a lot of systems. And today you can do it,” Trump replied. He then attempted to frame the answer in terms of border security and a need to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. Limbaugh: Hillary hack’s Trump hit piece gobbled up by media
Trump took to social media Friday afternoon to address the situation. Instead of a string of tweets, the Republican opted for a brevity.
“I didn’t suggest a database – a reporter did. We must defeat Islamic terrorism & have surveillance, including a watch list, to protect America,” Trump said.
The media and the republican establishment are all out to get Trump. That includes that wimpy dweeb head of the Republican Party Reince Priebus.They want someone they can control and they know they can’t control Trump. Carly Fiorina recently sent a letter out to her supporters saying the establishment republicans don’t want anything to do with outsiders.
Now John Kasich is out to get Trump by forming his own PAC at the request of the republican establishment. John Kasich has attacked Donald Trump relentlessly in debates and now his super PAC is planning to invest $2.5 million in the most aggressive takedown of the poll leader yet — on behalf of an increasingly anxious GOP establishment.
The attack, according to a blueprint shared with POLITICO, will play out over the next two months on radio, TV, mail and online in New Hampshire. Strategists with the pro-Kasich group, called New Day for America, say the budget for the anti-Trump campaign is likely to grow.
Trump responded to the news by lashing out at Kasich on Twitter.
“I want to do negative ads on John Kasich, but he is so irrelevant to the race that I don’t want to waste my money,” Trump wrote in one tweet.
They are so afraid that if Trump gets the nomination they will lose. I don’t know where their heads are at. Who do they think can beat Hillary? Bush? Marco Rubio? I seriously doubt it. If they run anyone else besides Trump then millions of people will go third party or stay at home and they will surely lose. I don’t care what Trump’s record in the past has been. He’s a million times better than the radical Muslim sympathizer we have in there now. He’s a good man, a patriot and loves his country and we know he was born here and attended a college where he graduated with honors. Unlike Obama who ‘s college records are all sealed and nobody remembers him and his birth place is highly questionable, especially after Judicial Watch proved his birth certificate was forged. Trump loves his country unlike Obama who hates it and blames us for all the repression in the world since our founding.
Critics of Trump are always attacking Trump about him being too bombastic and act like all he did was host a TV show. Trump has built buildings around the world and made deals with world leaders. He didn’t get that way being Mr. nice guy. When he builds a building he gets it done all within budget not like these senators and congress people who take two years to get something built and go in debt. Besides he’s got more requirements for the job than someone who went from being just a community organizer then senator for six months to President.
I think this comment I saw sums it up perfectly: Jonathan Miller •
Let’s see. Who was it that identified people for a round up? Hmmm, the Nazis. Who else agreed to that over here? Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He ordered a roundup of all Japanese ancestry people and sent them to concentration camps. His reasoning was that since he had painted them as back-stabbing cowards who attacked before a declaration of war that he was justified to round them up and put them somewhere, not-caring in the least that most were American Citizens… Roosevelt arrested and detained the entire communications department of radiomen to keep from the public the fact that the Japanese had announced and declared war on the United States…
Obama’s NSA actively listens to our phone calls, reads our mail and email, and tracks our browser history, But the liberals are scared of a list showing the names of all the Fake Syrian Refugees and their biometric information? Why? Because it will show the true numbers and nature of their crimes?
He’s absolutely correct. Every e-mail you send ,every phone call you make, everything you post on Facebook, twitter and instagram is all recorded and stored for six months at a time in that new NSA facility in Utah. That was under Obama. He has the biggest database of all, but liberals are worried about a database for Muslims some of which could be ISIS and other radical terrorists hell bent on destroying America.
